from Creative Loafing (Atlanta, GA):

Fred Weaver

Weaver describes his music as "epic art-punk," which means he's probably pretty irritable. Cuts from his first two albums, Present Dusk and The Fiercest Angels Did Descend, reveal an unconventional pairing of both acoustic singer-songwriter and aggressive punk sensibilities, with vocals that take a more aggravated stab at the groggy/pained inflection of J. Mascis. What can you say? It's art, baby.
